I have been busy with my sociology class this last week. As one class comes to an end another one begins. What this meant for me is that I had a mountain of homework over the weekend. One of the things I had to do was to write a final for my sociology class on immigration. Okay I know a little about that and did a bit of research...great. So I sit down Saturday morning to write....and nothing....and then nothing more... I was stuck. I wrote a few sentences that were horrible and took a break. I have a couple of books that contain short stories so I thought that maybe doing some reading would help. I read a little, researched a little. Yup- this will work I poured another cup of coffee, faced my laptop, pulled up my APA formatted paper and......umm nothing.... OMG. I. can. not. express how frustrated I became. The clock ticked away mocking my inability to complete a full proper sentence, to express a single thought.
I have never fancied myself to have excellent writing skills- adequate yes. I have been at the college thing for three years now you would think I would have picked up something-yes? No! apparently it was all for not, because I could not put more then three sentences together for two whole days. I think I broke the spell... at least a little... yesterday I was able to pull out several paragraphs- not cohesive but paragraphs all the same. Ahem, this experience has rocked my self-esteem and left me feeling scared and anxious. That nagging little voice of self-doubt seems to have had a its fill and is now spewing all its negativity into my consciousness.
So there you have it....that is where I am at this week- I hope that those who visit here are having a better experiences.!!
